The importance of cognitive training
Our brains … are still very much a mystery, but we do know that our brain needs exercise, two types to be exact. One type of exercise our brains need is cognitive; we need to read, think and learn new things to keep our brain functioning and healthy. The second type of exercise is physical movement; research now shows movement helps keep the brain healthy as well. Physical movement reinforces existing brain pathways, as well as generating new neuro pathways. On Tuesday, Oct. 27 from 1-2:30 p.m., Colleen Gilroy, PT will present on "The Importance of Cognitive Training." There is no cost for the class, and to register for this class please visit the ACC's website at http://www.ci.oswego.or.us/acc/acc-virtual-presentations.
